'Most Likely to Succeed’ Film Screening
Join fellow educators and community members in a special screening of the edu-documentary 'Most Likely to Succeed', followed by post film discussion, as we consider the question: How do we best prepare our students for their future?
This inspirational film explores the possibilities of education when we provide opportunities for students to have strong student agency over their learning. ‘Most Likely to Succeed’ looks at how one school has adopted a fresh approach to educating their students with great results.
It explores the possibilities of how learning environments, building on passion and expertise, giving students a voice and leveraging partnerships with parents and school community, can have a positive impact on student learning. This award winning film reaffirms some of the great things we are doing in our schools, and raises questions about what else can be done to provide our students with the best education.
Please note: This film contains one word of profanity, so it not suitable for primary school aged children.
"For most of the last century, entry-level jobs were plentiful, and college was an affordable path to a fulfilling career. That world no longer exists. The feature-length documentary 'Most Likely to Succeed' examines the history of education, revealing the growing shortcomings of our school model in today%u02BCs innovative world. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been named "among the best edu-documentaries ever produced" by Education Week. The Huffington Post stated that Most Likely to Succeed "delivers a message Americans need to hear, and desperately." Film Threat said, "This film should be a required course for all parents and educators."
Tea and coffee will be served on arrival from 4.30pm, please be seated by 5pm.
